IPMLite is a one-of-a-kind app developed by 7 universities to provide you with the best and most current home landscape information. IPM (Integrated Pest Management) means taking care of plants to avoid pest problems and managing those pest problems that do arise in a way that minimizes chemical use. IPMLite is the best way to access sound, unbiased information for taking care of your landscape plants while you are in your yard doing what you love!

Horrible, No Support, Don't Buy
I was so excited about what this app promised. However, it offers no support. Also, once loaded, when you launch the app, there are no instructions on how to set up your password and log in to the app. Therefore you get stuck in the log in screen and can't sign in. The password recovery doesn't work either. Very, very, very disappointing. So I've wasted my money now. Should have been tested better than this.
Impossible to Sign On
Must enter personal identification and location information for app to work. But app will not allow me to enter county or zone. Cannot access any IPM info unless this info is entered. This app has basic problems that render it useless. The app states that it is compatible for the iPad but I can only get it to load on the iTouch.
Chemical info in pro version only
I overlooked that one needs to buy the IPM PRO in order to find chemical advice.
